Looks like the script found his old df_linux folder living in .local/share, recommended .local/share, and then upon failure, deleted .local/share assuming it was a top level df-lnp only folder. We took out this guy's keyrings, wesnoth saves, and more. :(

As part of the 0.4.0-dev branch, the amount of radical FS changes we're doing is reduced. All installation steps now install to a destination directory, which gets copied (not moved) to the install dir at the end of the script. Now any deletion and recreation of a folder is to a known-good folder.

Inilix, I'm very sorry that happened to you. I hope you had backups. :(

Pushing this and the other 0.4.0 dev changes out so hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone else.
